    Not long till you will need a law degree to ref/judge judo! Next update - you will be required to **** on a picture of Kano prior to bowing to your opponent, just to let him know how the big judo organizations feel about keeping his martial art practical.

    I've been giving thought to how seriously I want to start competing in judo, as I get better at it and in better shape. I really don't want to deal with all the bullshit that made up fencing comps, and these rule changes that have come about in the short time I've practiced it fill me with dread. Maybe I'll just compete in cross-art grappling and BJJ despite using judo as my base art.

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer. Join us... or die

    A normal grip is your left hand to their right side, right hand to left side (or vice versa if you're a lefty). Non-normal is both hands on the same side of the jacket, or gripping the belt (or the lol-pants... I think they need to update that bit).

    A standard grip is sleeve/collar. A non standard grip is anything else.

    So for example, taking their left and right collar would be a non-standard, but "normal" grip, and thus perfectly fine. But taking their left collar in both hands for more than 3 seconds is illegal.

    So cross-facing is allowed, you're just not allowed to hang on to it the whole match. Use it to break their balance and throw.

    At least that's my interpretation.

    I was at a tournament on Saturday, and they were operating a three strike rule. First time you did it the ref would give you a verbal warning, second time a shido, and then hansoku make. I only saw one guy get disqualified, and he got let back in for his repechage after talking with one of the judges.

    Let me rephrase. When I say "crossfacing", I mean "grabbing the guys face while I'm on his back so I can sink in a RNC." The fact that I can't do that bothers me.

    It's a shame because it's definitely not the fault of the local Judoka who have been for the most part nothing but welcoming. But the worst thing you can possibly do to an athlete is force them to play someone else's game.

    I should've known it would happen when this old fart got up in front of everyone and said "play good judo. not sambo, not MMA.". How about us, the competitors get to decide what good judo is, not someone who hasn't randori'd since Sun-Ra was alive?

    He should have said "learn good judo to take on Sambo & MMA". I was chatting with some fellow judoka at the gym and 2 other guys who cross-train in the BJJ said they're not going back to do judo comps again. Same here. During Randori we grip how ever the **** we want and grab legs whenever we want. **** the new rules, **** the Olympics, and **** the IJF. They're going to make judo into a martial art that's about as effective as Aikido and figure skating. Spread the word - cancel your IJF memberships. And burn your bras or gis.

    Anyone know what this "good judo" is and what makes it better than other styles/tactics/strategies/whatever? I've sort of talked about this at my dojo and it quickly heads into emotional territory about classical standup Japanese whatever. It just doesn't seem like a good idea to have the discussion with someone who can rip my arm off and take it home as a souvenir.
